Police were called to the A47/A15 roundabout near Brotherhood Shopping Park at around 3pm yesterday (Tuesday, May 4) to assist with vehicle recovery.

A spokesman for the force said there were no reported injuries.

Earlier in the day the PT had published an article which revealed that inadequate road markings have led to an “increased risk of side-to-side collisions” for vehicles heading off the roundabout eastbound onto the A47.

A further 15 problems were also identified in the safety audit produced by contractors Skanska which included inadequate markings, narrow roads and a failure by drivers to adhere to the new 30mph speed limit, all of which were said to increase the risk of collisions.

The crash is said to have taken place heading northbound towards Brotherhoods.
